Shauna Mendini, Theatre Arts and Dance Department Chair states, “I am personally looking forward to presenting Rhythmic Exchanges, a collaborative project with Patrick Roulet, Assistant Professor of Music. It is projects like this that renew the spirit and provide an excellent opportunity for creative growth.

Guest choreographer, Peter Chu has taught and choreographed for the Houston Metropolitan Dance Co., The Juilliard School summer dance, Busan International Beach Dance Festival (Korea), the cast of Le Reve created by Franco Dragone, Edge Scholarship Show in LA, Le Domaine Forget Summer Intensive in Charlevoix, Quebec, and for the Invito Alla Danza Festival 2003 in Rome.

A guest artist residency such as this helps us accomplish artistic and educational goals that can be shared with the community. It provides a wonderful partnership.”
